a short survey for the first day of class

We will use the third edition of *Precalculus: A Prelude to Calculus* by Sheldon Axler.

Homework will be due at the beginning of discussion on the days listed in the schedule below. Late homework will not be accepted. Quizzes will occur during discussion and will cover the textbook sections indicated in the schedule below. Problems will be similar to those on the homework.

If you cannot attend my office hours, please give me a list of times when you are free so we can set up a meeting.

More information is included in the syllabus. You can also use this form to send me a question or comment anonymously. (Berkeley login required.)
